Are you ready to say "HELLOOOOOOOOOO 2012?"
I am & I think most our family is because in the next 4 weeks
my nephew will be born. I feel like the crazed auntie already - someone please take away my debit card! I'm kidding - just feels good to be buying things for him now that's it's nearly time for him to arrive. After he is here, then things can slow down for a bit before my sister, brother in law & nephew to be depart on an overseas journey for the next few years. Good thing I've learned how to ship cookies ;-)
Do you see my newest cutter - Gingerbread Mickey! My friend bought him for me at Disneyland (Anaheim) the week before Christmas. I couldn't wait to use him so I threw him in with my New Years cookies. The Mickey below I flooded with out an outline - worked pretty good and didn't run over but I think I still prefer to pipe an outline & flood within the lines.
Mickey says "Happy New Year!"
Scallop cutter turned into a clock
Dragees that I bought in New York early fall
My royal icing work has come a long way since last year ago when I made these
I buy my disco dust from Karen's Cookies
The big 2011 cutter was a circle scallop cutter that I bent to an oval shape
Monocromatic chevrons - fell in love with chevrons while
planning my sister's baby shower
Wishing you all a happy, healthy & prosporous
